Every day you have the opportunity to make decisions based on what's good for the climate. If you get to know your carbon footprint better, you also have the power to reduce it yourself. You don't have to turn your life upside down or give up everything that is fun. With every small change you make, you create a positive impact and may even encourage others to do the same.
2 reduction is the most important measure to combat the climate crisis. Only if we as a society manage to reduce our footprint, we can comply with the Paris Climate Agreement and thus the 1.5 degree target.
However our emissions, which are the key to successful climate protection, are invisible and abstract to all of us. How our actions affect our carbon footprint is often not comprehensible.
Still, many of us already know:
Every year, a person in Germany emits an average of about 11 tonnes of 2. But where do you stand here on average, and what causes the most 2in your own everyday life?
Until now, to get an answer to this question, you usually had to painstakingly collect individual data in order to be able to calculate them.
The Footprint Feature now puts your own consumption in context with your2 emissions.
This way, you get to know your own footprint better and maybe even get encouraged to optimise it. By changing your behaviour, you create a positive impact yourself and at the same time become a role model in your environment.
